Tuna Fishing from a Dory

Tuna Fishing from a Dory

My husband, Brad, and I have owned a Dory boat for about eight years now. He finally got me out tuna fishing and I'm hooked. I've fished with him for over 15 years and this was the most fun I've ever had. We were in our boat "Concubine" off the Oregon Coast, 20 miles out of Pacific City. We started fishing about 7:30 a.m. and by Noon, our boat was to full to fish for more. We caught 70 tuna on August 26, 2008.
Amazing for so late in the year.

Wow, what a catch! That will make great canned tuna for the rest of the year. Makes great gifts too! Wish I was in their circle of friends ;-)

My guess is John is extremely jealous and doesn't get out much. Great Catch!

Wow. What a snide remark, John.

Who cares, besides...who can eat that much fish? For personal use?
